College Football got a playoff system that showcased the four best teams squaring off on each other. It may not have turned out the way I would have thought, but there no longer can be any doubt in the end who are the best teams playing in the title game for the National Championship. The Ohio State Buckeyes stunned previously number one Alabama 42-35. After trailing 21-6 midway through the second quarter, Ohio State scored 36 points to Alabama’s 14 as the Tide’s defense couldn’t stop the Buckeyes’ rushing attack. Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott ripped off an 85-yard touchdown run to give the Buckeyes a 42-28 lead after a two-point conversion pass.Elliott finished with 20 carries for a Sugar Bowl-record 230 yards and two touchdowns.
Oregon blew the doors off the reigning National Champions Florida State 59-20 and Jameis Winston picked this time to play his worse game. Florida State opened the second half with the ball, looking to go ahead, but freshman tailback Dalvin Cook fumbled in Oregon territory. The Ducks quickly capitalized as tailback Royce Freeman was in the end zone just five plays later.After the teams traded two more touchdowns – a Winston 18-yard pass to Travis Rudolph and a Mariota 56-yard pass to Darren Carrington – Cook fumbled again, this time on a pass out of the backfield. Two plays later, Mariota hit Carrington behind the defense again to increase the Oregon lead to 39-20.Winston scrambled to avoid pressure and the ball simply slipped out of his hand. Oregon’s Tony Washington picked up the loose ball and returned it 58 yards for a touchdown, expanding the lead to 45-20.
